Sydney Tramway Museum, Loftus

4.3
The Sydney Tramway Museum began life in 1950. From 1957 the Museum operated from a large corrugated iron shed alongside what is now today the Parklink tramline, on the opposite side of the Princes Highway from the current site. In 1988, the Museum moved to its current premises next to Loftus railway station.

The museum has an extensive collection of trams from Sydney and cities in Australia and around the world.

There are two tram lines from the museum used to run tram rides for museum visitors. The first runs 1.5 km north almost to Sutherland railway station, paralleling Rawson Avenue in the way Sydney's tram system operated, the second utilises a former railway that once branched off Sydney Train's Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra (T4) railway line that 2 km into the Royal National Park that flanks Sydney's southern boundary.

The Sydney Tramway Museum is run entirely by volunteers and self funds its day to day activities, restorations and construction programs from gate takings and donations from the public.
